Nayef attended Victoria College in Cairo. He became regent of Jordan on 20 July 1951, following the assassination of Abdullah, because his brother, King Talal, was reportedly suffering from poor health. Nayef ruled in his older brother's stead until 6 September 1951, when Talal was judged fit to assume his royal duties. Nayef died in Jordan on 12 October 1983.
